EMERGENCY services feared there would be three deaths as a result of last week’s crash on the new A1073.
Lincolnshire Road Safety Partnership spokesman John Siddle said the incident last Wednesday, in which a baby boy and his parents were plucked from the wreckage of their car, was initially expected to be fatal.
He said: “It was amazing that they all pulled through. It was very close.”
He said speed had not been a factor in the crash.
The collision followed another lucky escape on our roads on June 1. Eight people went to hospital after a ten-vehicle pile up on the A17 at Fleet.
